CBJ claim Darryl Boyce on waivers from the Leafs

The blog posts will come fast and furious over the next couple of days, so let's dispense with the pleasantries.

The Columbus Blue Jackets picked up center Darryl Boyce from the Toronto Maple Leafs waiver wire.  The 28-year-old Boyce has played in 17 games for the Leafs this season, notching a single goal and a single assist.  The Toronto fanbase and intelligentsia suggests that Boyce is a high-character player, which appears to fit the new roster DNA requirement of Howson 4.0.

Boyce sounds like a fourth liner to me, which leads me to believe that the thus-far current bottom six are going to get shuffled in the next couple of days.  (Pahlsson?  Mackenzie?  Boll?)

  1. Over the short term we might just stack some bud light in the kitchen. The fans are going to need it.

    1. Eric Francis is on the hotstove. He said Cammallerri wasn't going to get traded to the Flames 9 minutes before the deal happened. I wouldn't put too much stock into that.
